Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Question - favorite show and why

For me, 2-28-69:

1) Sublime Dark Star with some of Jerry's most beautiful ever guitar tone (particularly from 6 minutes on)
2) Best-ever The Eleven (!!!)
3) Any show with a Death Don't Have No Mercy merits consideration
4) A TOO that doesn't quite match 3-1-69 (or, okay WT, 12-29-68) but is really solid
5) An Alligator>Caution>Feedback>BYG that is shorter than 3-2-69 but has this highly stimulating exploratory quality--like they're forever just slightly out of the groove rhythmically and harmonically and so they make some great music maneuvering towards one another.

Plus, there's the whole first set to enjoy.
